Figure 2 Closed circuit ball mill flowsheet classification before milling (secondary ball mills) 1 1 C1 C2 Q2 2 E2 KQ (3) Q1 1 1 C2 C1 2 E1 The relative capacity of closed ball mill circuits at varying circulating load is compared to a base case with 250% circulating load and 50% classification efficiency (typical for classification with ... Calculating Power Draw when sizing Ball Mills. Im interested to know when sizing a new ball mill, as to why recirculating load has no effect on the power calculation, although it will have effect on volumetric capacity naturally. For instance a mill of 300tph with a 300% recirculating load would have 1200tph going through effectively, but if we reduce the recirculating load to 200% at 900tph ...
